Prepare for a long wait. But if you get a bottle of wine and a pack of cards, the wait in this cozy restaurant is actually really relaxing. And most of all, the food is more than worth the wait! My lasagne was really really...More

We waited almost 2h for the food, they brought us the wrong wine (couldn't change because the bottle was open) and the taste was ok but not spectacular. Also pretty expensive. Would not go back.

Very bad experience. We arrived at 7pm and got our food at 9.30 pm. The service was rude and we didn't feel welcome. There were no bread basket nor any kind of snacks while waiting and the waiter did not warn us about the long...More

Four of us went to Las Velas on last Saturday for dinner. The place was packed so it took a while that the waiter came to talk to us and when he did, he was really unpolite. After he had taken our orders it took...More
